    I’ve used peanuts, cashews and today I’m using lightly broken almonds. You can use any nut. For Xmas I plan to make them with a can of mixed nuts.

    Made this this year instead of the crock pot version. This was so easy. Love the flavors blended together. Definitely a five star on all levels.

    This candy was delicious! I gave it as gifts along with other candy that I made. It's not easy just eating one piece.
